Time to detox

ABLOATED tummy is not only uncomfortable but also affects your mood, appetite and confidence. It is not to be confused with being fat.

Belly fat is fatty ceils around your midsection and you can't get rid of it without proper diet and exercise. Stomach bloating is when the abdomen feels full and tight, even when you have just eaten a little.

And the most common cause is irregular. digestion or putrefying waste in the colon that produces gas at a higher rate than normal

These accumulated waste and toxins, if not released, will build up and overburden a crucial part of your body's natural detoxi-fication system.

In today's toxic world, our natural detoxi-fication process can easily become over-

whelmed, forcing toxins to flow back and re-circulate in our body system.

The most obvious source of toxins is of course from our food.

No matter how vigilant you may be about your lifestyle, there are unlimited sources

from where toxins can be found.

What's more, did you know that it takes about eight to 10 hours for food, after consumption, to reach our colon?

Our colon is made up of three parts: ascending, traverse and descending. It stores waste, reclaims water and maintains water balance in our body.

It also breaks down remaining proteins from partially digested food entering from our small intestines.

By the time the mass of a digested meal reaches the descending colon, the stool constitutes two parts water, undigested fibre and food products and one part of living and dead bacteria. "

The bacteria breakdown some fibre for hour shment creating waste products, which in turn nourishes the colon's cell lining.

Our colon is the waste disposal system in our body. If this system gets clogged up, all

these waste flows back into our body as toxins.

Without enough fibre, stool cannot pass through the colon easily, Consequently, the stool becomes harder, making it more difficult to be excreted.

The longer faeces stay inside our body, the longer our exposure to putrefactive bacteria.

This long intestinal transit time causes gut flora (good bacteria inside the colon) to function less efficiently and eventually gets overtaken by the harmful putrefactive bacteria.

Putrefying toxins in your colon contribute to the "sludge" in your intestines. This fermenting process also produces a lot of intestinal gas, which gives that discomfort feeling of bloated-hess.

Constipation and stomach bloating are symptoms you cannot ignore, even if it occurs occasionally, since it will lead to slow poisoning of our body system.

Understanding your skin

ATTAINING beautiful skin is not a fantasy, even for those born with poorer genes. In fact, beautiful skin has become skincare's trend lately, receiving a lot more attention than just having good skin.

Good skin is essential in the society we live in, whether at work or play. Beautiful skin simply sums up beauty in totality.

"Beautiful skin is the foundation of natural beauty," says Cindy Yeoh, a 20-something writer who takes care of her appearance. "Having dewy and fresh skin actually make you look younger. A plain girl is capable of looking beautiful when she has beautiful skin."

What causes skin ageing?.

Skin consists of three distinct layers -- the Epidermis (outer protective layer). Dermis (inner supporting layer) and the Subcutis layer (fatty tissue layer). The structural elements on the dermis layer are made up of an even pattern of collagen and elastin protein fibres embedded in a gel-like substance rich in moisture-binding polysaccharides. This even pattern ensures a healthy, well-moisture, smooth, supple and elastic skin structure with a radiant and even complexion. However, the pattern deteriorates on a daily basis due to the internal and external factor.

Approximately 90% of skin ageing is caused by external factors environment, lifestyle and UV damage, The signs of ageing are dehydration, fine lines & wrinkles. uneven skin tone, UV spots/pigmentation and.thinner skin.

Over time, the skin's essential supportive structure deteriorates and bundtes up in the lower part of the dermis, making it unable to support the upper epidermis layer. The skin becomes dry, fine lines & wrinkles are formed, dilated capillaries and pigmentation spots become more visible and the lack of elasticity makes skin more lax.

To be more specific, skin ageing begins at 30 or even earlier depending on your lifestyle. So with so much going against our skin, how do we go about getting good and beautiful skin?

The answer lies in understanding your skin and nourishing it with potent nutrients.
